    "The book was great!"

    Over all it didn't meet my expectations. The story wasn't as good as the sample made it out to be. But I actually really ended up liking it! I really didn't see the ending coming and it was a great shocker! Although the narrators voice is a bit annoying.

    "Not that insightful"

    This is a good book if you are looking to listen to something in which your attention will wander or you put it down for some time and pick it back up. It is not "deep", informative or even that interesting.

    "Hauntingly Realistic!!!"

    This novelist did such a great job getting into this "pretty girl's" head that I found myself not believing it was fiction...amazing story with a great narrator. I was hooked from the first paragraph. I loved how the backstory was interwoven with current happenings.
